    ecotec 1.8 16v x18xe1

    Hey can any body help me?

    I'm wanting to do a engine convo in my Astra mk4.
    But before I jump the gun I want to know all possibilities
    Of what I can do with original.

    I have got corsa sport gearbox which I belive gives higher gear ratio??
    And k n filter oh and exhaust system.

    I think it's rapid now but these newer cars seem to have bit more ompfh!
    She does pass and leave same engine but want it to be a head turner with a
    Good note!

    WHAT CAN I DO TO GET BETTER BHP FROM THIS ENGINE??

    Any info/opinions much appreciated.

    I'd second that as I've got the same. I'm guessing you've done all the usual mods with the air intake/filter/derestricted airbox?

    gonna cost money but to see the bast gains, dbilas intake manifold, lexmaul exhauste manifold decat/sportscat, strate through exhauste, uprated cams then a remap will cost abourt 2k but you should be able to see 170bhp (gearbox will struggle with this much power tho)

    Theres a guy on here whos done all but the cams and hes sitting at 150bhp
